Okawat's is located in a central part of Ubud. Close to the soccer field, you will be walking most of the time in this smallish artisan town, and it is easy to get back "home" when you ask directions to the soccer field! I was a woman traveling alone, and felt safe and "looked out for" by the staff. For example, one night I was out late at a nearby Internet cafe. When I returned, Okawati herself was waiting at the gate for me! "I worry you get lost!" she said to me in broken English.
I had the upstairs room overlooking the pool. The bed was VERY firm, as I have found most beds are in the more simple and quaint homestays in Bali.The carved and painted shutters, doors, and furniture are authentic Bali. The breakfast was fruit and a simple egg type sandwich. With the ginger tea, it was plenty. One morning I went for a sunrise walk in the nearby rice fields. It ended up being longer than planned, as I happened upon a secluded spa, and proceeded to get a soak and foot massage! When I returned at almost noon, the staff asked if I wanted breakfast. From then on, I told them my plans, and the brought me breakfast when I asked.
The pool is cold, but refreshing if it is hot and muggy. I would stay here again.
